Described by many as the king of afro-wave, Gambian superstar, Nova, is showing no sign of abating as he continues to amaze countless US fans across cities as his tour of US intensifies.
It could be recalled that Nova alongside Rady Mose and the Senegalese superstar Wally Seck, earlier on in July, left for the United States of America, courtesy of Global Properties, one of the Gambia’s estate developers. The tour was basically to promote their music in that part of the world. Since then, reports reaching What’s On and those posted on social media, revealed that the Gambian star is indeed taking Gambian music to another level.
In a recent interview with What’s On, Nova stated that the trip being his first time is an eye opener in his quest to promote his music internationally. “Yes, it is my first time you know and the forces behind our trip are Global Properties and Champion Sound. So I want to say a big shout-out to the Chief Executive Officer of Global Properties Saul Frazer,” he stated.
According to him, since they arrived in US, their shows were going smoothly and went on to laud Gambians in US for their warm welcome and turn out in the concerts.
With tight schedules, Nova is determined to promote Gambian music in that part of the world, and expressed his desire to do collaborations with some US artistes if time permits.
“Since we arrived here we have been criss-crossing several cities like New York, North Carolina, Texas and Las Vega among other cities to do concerts. My aim is to fly the Gambia’s flag high through my music and this US tour is a good experience as far as my music career is concerned,” he added.
With his short stay, Nova maintained that afro-wave, the genre he promotes, is gaining momentum as demonstrated in the number of receptions from deejays, who also request for gigs to promote in their respective areas.
He continued: “Afro-wave is moving positively here and is a kind of music that contains a whole lot of flavours. So people here love it so much. Even when I am on stage you see dejays acknowledging how they love the genre. And that is a blessing. I pray that God keep blessing The Gambia,”
